Most office staff have tasks that they perform daily, perhaps once or twice, and occasionally more depending on how busy things are. If you had a way to cut down on the time it takes to do some of these tasks, what would that mean for your business? Instead of minutes, what if these tasks took mere seconds to complete?

Annually, it would amount to several hundred extra hours (at least) for a business with even just a handful of employees. That’s the kind of efficiency owners of Xerox multifunction printers can enjoy—and that’s why today we’re discussing Xerox’s one touch apps.

One touch apps are custom-built apps that you can put together yourself. When you tap the button for the app, your MFP will automatically perform a predetermined set of instructions. More or less any common work process that you would normally do on your printer can be set up as a one-touch app.

As it turns out, that’s quite a powerful function!

Let’s dig a little deeper:

Owners of Xerox VersaLink or AltaLink multifunction printers have access to the one touch app feature. Just about any normal task you regularly repeat can be set up as a one touch app. For example, you can set up a one touch app to scan a document, archive it in the cloud, print a copy, and send a PDF of the document to your email address.

This process can be as simple or granular as you like—for example, the PDF in the process described above could be customized, if desired. The document can be in color, black and white, searchable, and so on. The email address the document is delivered to can be any address you like, not just your own. Multiple recipients are also possible, so you could send one to yourself and one to a client you’re working with, for instance.

The key to making one touch apps work well is to get creative. Think about any process that you perform the same way every time. It’s likely a prime candidate to be set up as a one touch app. In the long run, you’ll save a surprisingly substantial amount of time.

For more information on how to set up a one touch app on your specific VersaLink or AltaLink model, visit the Xerox support page and enter your model type. Once discovered, search for “one touch app” for complete setup details.
